Birth of Holocaust denial

Post by Cantankerous » 03 Sep 2019 01:11

It doesn't surprise that Holocaust denial offends Holocaust survivors and their kids by denying that 6 million Jews were killed or arguing that many Jews escaped Nazism by fleeing to the Soviet Union. Does anyone have any records of the first people to deny that the Holocaust ever happened?

The first one was Heinrich Luitpold Himmler.

Most infamously during his meeting with Masur.
Though I'm not sure whether he was the first.
